RIYL: persian rugs & heady nuggs

Label: Wick Records (Daptone)

Back in June of 2016, The Mystery Lights greeted the world hand-in-hand with Daptone’s brand new rock ‘n roll sublabel Wick Records.  The blitzkrieg came quickly and unexpectedly, as blitzkriegs often do, leaving a lot of injured souls who missed out on the limited vinyl bundles.  Let’s not make that mistake again, alright?

Now, the sixties are definitely over, literally and politically, but The Mystery Lights are a part of a long lineage of musical proselytizers who remind us that the spirit of that decade is far from dead.  In fact, it’s just as alive as it was in some Pleasant Valley garage in 1964 as the chords of ‘Louie Louie’ filled the suburban streets.  It’s as pure as any Nuggets-era obscurity and as heavy as any of your favorite proto punk compilations.  Tune in.

Wick Records has some delicious neon splatter vinyl after the ‘buy’ link.  If that colorway was a Jelly Belly flavor, it’d be called ‘Acid Fry’.  Check out the first single below!
